James Cook University
An EGRU Professional Geologist Short Course
Ore Textures & Breccias: Recognition Techniques
Course Leader: Dr Gavin Clarke, EGRU JCU
Monday 28 – Wednesday 30 January 2019
James Cook University, Townsville Campus
This three-day course covers the fundamentals of textural observation and interpretation in mineralised hydrothermal systems.
The techniques used are simple, highly effective and require no specialised equipment.
The techniques are also extremely practical in that they generate numerous questions about the mineralisation being studied and commonly provide vectors toward mineralisation for drill testing.
Critical evaluation factors considered during the course include:
- Infill: Recognition Criteria
- Alteration: Recognition & Evaluation
- Channelways: Recognition Criteria
- Overprinting and Paragenesis: Recognition & Sequencing Criteria
- Breccia: Recognition Criteria
- Breccia: Rudimentary Classification System
- Tectonic Breccia Systems
- Intrusive Breccia Systems
- Paragenetic Core Logging
The course comprises lectures and practical sessions.
This is a Level 4 (Honours) course suitable for early career geoscientists.
Participants will be working alongside JCU Geoscience Honours students.
